Mud caked a little boy’s bruised skin And filth dripped off of him. His mother sighed and shook her head When he first appeared in her sight.
Don'T Worry, Bare Tree
Right now, the wind blows through your branches And you moan. Your branches are bare and have lost color For another winter.
I Fear Our Future
I like you very much. But each day I tell you I love you, And it’s a lie. There is only one I truly love,

Look Through My Eyes
Dear Pessimist, You hate this life. You hate this world. You hate these people.
Picture this: Writhing. Head, arms, legs flailing frantically beyond control.
Where do you flow to?
Who else is looking at you?
What lies below your surface?
Why have you captured my focus?
